Summary note
This poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, the campaign against terrorism, and foreign policy, as well as their views on the United States economy and the situation between Israel and the Palestinians. They also expressed their opinions on federal regulation of business, their confidence in big business and business in general, whether big business had influence on the Bush administration, reports about corporate accounting scandals, and the honesty of American corporate executives and members of the Bush administration. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of the establishment of a Palestinian homeland in the West Bank and Gaza, and current and future relations between the United States and Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat. The poll elicited respondents' views on airport security changes since September 11, 2001, the El Al shooting at Los Angeles international airport, and the military action against Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein from power. Respondents answered questions regarding tax-funded school vouchers for tuition for private or religious schools, the stock market and their personal investments, insider trading, the war in Afghanistan, the ability of the United States government to protect against future terrorist attacks, and identifying the people who had sent anthrax through the U.S. mail. Background information includes respondents' political affiliation, marital status, religion, education, income, race, and gender.
